Bob Sumner - Riverbed

I am not sure that I’ve ever heard a rimshot repeat-delay like that; it’s fascinating that a small nudge can transform the mix in such subtle ways. It’s a classic folk cadence, and showcases the true power of a simple progression: if you let the melody lead the way, all will be well.

It’s the mark of a true artist to have a good sense of space, and timing. Bob Sumner, with his new single Riverbed, delivers a sonic exploration of Americana, and the comforting connection between rock drums, a bed of acoustic fingerpicking, and the succinct lyricism of a proper folk persona. The authentic core that informs this entire sound is a rare and important gift.
